Awards time again!

Brinda has passed 4 awards to me, out of which one is designed by herself. Great job Brinda!
Thanks for your nice words.
I am really overwhelmed with joy on receiving so much love from my fellow bloggers.

Sangi has also passed on the above award to me. Thanks Sangi. The award comes with the following tag. Sangi says, it should be answered with single word. But, Brinda's tag didn't have a rule like that. For a talkative person like me, answering in a single word is near impossible. Moreover, tags are after all to know more about our fellow bloggers. Being a sweet person that Sangi is, I know she won't mind me breaking the rule. What say, Sangi?

Passing these awards to Lata,Rohini,Sangi,Chitra,Priya,Divya
Pass these awards to 6 blogger friends. I would like to give an option. You can choose to post the awards, which you have not received till date.
Thanks friends, for being with me.

Hey did you guys notice the change in my blog design? I slogged for a couple of days to come up with this design.
As Lata rightly pointed out, I feel this design is more spread out and readability is better.
Pour in your thoughts!

Update: As Rohini pointed out, my blog header picture does not get loaded in IE. It comes up well in firefox and chrome. I stopped using IE, for a long time now. The picture size is 70 KB and I don't know why the heck it doesn't appear on IE. Any inputs?


Rohini said...

Lovely Design Vidya! Sure looks great and well organized!! Btw, I am not able to see any header/heading, did you choose to leave it that way? or is my browser ditching me? ;)

Thanks for the awards dear!! So sweet of you.. Nice to know more about you through the meme..
Keep rocking gal :)

Sree vidya said...

Yup You are right!
It doesn't show up in IE
It comes in chrome and firefox.
Should find a solution.
The size is just 70 KB. No clue.
Thanks for the lovely feed back, Rohini.

Dear Vidya,
Congratulations on these fantabulous awards. Thank you for sharing this one with me. You are a sweetheart.
As for using vanilla essence in maida cake yes, but use few drops, else it will be bitter. I have used and I have used half maida half groung almond powder with some almond essence too. All of them taste good and turn out soft.
